Alisha Emeraude is the niece of Nekonome and a respected warrior of the Emeraude clan, and an S-Rank Monster Hunter who is one of Fennmont's most sussecful bounty hunters; she is saving the bounties until she has enough to secure a new home-land for her clan. She is a cat demon (specifically she is part Kasha and part Nekomata) who swore an oath to protect everyone in who enters the Emerald Forest from enemy Ayakashi and NPC monsters. The oath traces back to her ancestor, whose life was saved by a young and mysterious member of the Amicus Family.
Alisha appears as a young Japanese woman in her adolescent years with a buxom figure (she suppresses her breasts from reasons unknown). She has long olive green hair with a braided ponytail that extends all the way down to her hips, with several bangs hanging over her forehead and side bangs that frame her face. Her original form is a brown cat, and in both forms she sports amber eyes.
In her Nekomata form, which she is mostly in, she grows a pair of olive green cat ears, a long brown tail, and her eye pupils become more cat-like.
For sleepwear, she wears a green-yellow yukata with a scarlet red obi sash. During her time at Monster Girl beach, she usually wears a seafoam green bikini top with white accents and a matching low-rise bottom with ribbons on her hips.
Alisha seems very playful, easy going, simple minded, and enjoys teasing people. She is also vulgar, using her beauty and sensuousness as a weapon in her arsenal of teasing. Alisha loves her little sister Catherine dearly, though she seems to have trouble showing it at times, preferring to tease her. She is very kind and loyal person to her friends and just about anyone, but when someone hurts someone she cares about she will kill them in cold blood.
Adding to her feline personality, Alisha often ends her sentences with "Nya" (にゃ), mimicking a cat's meow.
